Iraqi PM to visit Tehran on Sunday

Tehran (ISNA) – Prime Minister of Iraq Mustafa al-Kadhimi will visit Iran on Sunday.

Heading a high-ranking political-economic delegation, Mustafa al-Kadhimi will travel to Tehran to meet with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and other Iranian senior officials.

At meetings with Iranian senior officials, Iraqi prime minister will discuss bilateral, regional and international issues.

An unnamed Iraqi government official told AFP that Mustafa al-Kadhimi in a meeting with president Raisi is scheduled to discuss the issues related to energy imports from Iran, security and counterterrorism, and Iran-Saudi relations.

According to him, the tense relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia and Iraq's efforts to mediate will be discussed during the meeting, and Iraq has previously mediated several meetings between officials of the two countries.

The Iraqi official also said that the issue of issuing visas for Iranian pilgrims to visit the holy shrines in Najaf and Karbala will also be discussed during the meeting.

This is the first official visit of a foreign official to Tehran after the election of Ebrahim Raeisi as President of Iran.
